Surabaya

Understand

With over 3 million people, Surabaya may be the second-largest city in Indonesia, but it's a little lacking in sights. Many people come here on business though, and it's also a gateway city for Mount Bromo and the island of MaduraMadura.

Surabaya

Get in

Surabaya

By plane

Surabaya's Juanda Airport (http://www.angkasapura1.co.id/eng/location/surabaya.htm) (SUB) is one of the busiest in the country, with very frequent flights to Jakarta and other major Indonesian destinations, as well as some direct international flights to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. There are separate terminals for domestic and international flights, neither of which will win any awards, but they're fairly functional with the amenities you'd expect (ATMs, car rental, etc).

Officially, you're supposed to buy fixed-fare taxi coupons from the "Prima Taxi" stand for the 18 km trip into town, around US$5-10 depending on your exact destination. In practice you may be able to get a driver dropping off passengers to pick you up. If you're going further away (eg. Mount Bromo), it'll be cheaper to a rent a car with a driver instead.

Get around

Surabaya

By taxi

Taxis are plentiful on the streets of Surabaya. Not all companies are reliable, so stick to Blue Bird Group and Express and insist on the meter. Official rates have increased in October 2005 but not all meters have yet caught up, so ask for a rate sheet if unsure. Figure on Rp 20,000 for a cross-town trip and Rp 70,000 to the airport.
